Monthly Meeting: Telescope Workshop and General Get-together – Thursday July 18th, 7:00pm

July 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This year we’ve decided to do a telescope workshop in July so we can help people tune up and learn to use their telescopes with immediate payoff under clear summer skies. If you have a scope that needs work, or if you need help learning how to use it, bring it! And if not, bring your expertise. You might be able to help someone else.

We’ll also use this time for general socializing. This is a chance to visit with and get to know other club members whom you might only know via the email list or in the dark at star parties.

This is a great opportunity to spread the word about our club and what we do. Tell anyone you know who might be interested in astronomy that this is the meeting to come to if they have questions about gear or about astronomy in general. The structure of this meeting will be very informal, with lots of opportunity to visit with one another and share our various areas of expertise. This is also a good opportunity to just hang out and visit with fellow club members. Come join the fun!

The meeting is at 7:00 on Thursday, July 18th at the Eugene Science Center planetarium, 2300 Leo Harris Parkway in Eugene (behind Autzen Stadium). Note that construction near Autzen stadium may close the west entrance to Leo Harris Parkway, so you might have to go around to the east end. Also note that the gated entrance at the stop light on the east end leads to the stadium, not the Science Center. You want to go beyond that to the actual entrance to Leo Harris Parkway.

People with scopes are encouraged to bring them a little early. We’ll be happy to help carry them in from the parking lot.
